The North Face Celebrates Earth Day With The Upcycled ‘Remade’ Collection

Apr 22, 2020

Category: Gear

Over the past week, the clothing industry’s biggest names have been putting their best foot forward in celebration of Earth Day. Sustainable fabrics, recycled materials, and conscious designs have begun to overtake their less-than-exemplary counterparts, especially in the case of The North Face’s newest Remade capsule — a lineup of “renewed” garments that have been repurposed for everyday wear.

Thanks to the introduction of the company’s newest Remade items, buyers who hope to support the company’s preservative mission can contribute in a number of meaningful ways. Each piece is crafted and repaired to start life anew, calling upon attributes like ripstop nylon, bespoke quilting, and ethically-sourced down to provide wearers with original upcycled examples. After undergoing an extensive inspection, cleaning, and alteration process by the brand’s talented Renewal Workshop members, everything from split tees, fleece jackets, puffers, and quilted liners can be repurchased for use by another individual, in another area of the world. Dig deeper, and you might even find some unique, one-of-a-kind flagship garments like the Nuptse Jacket, Morph Hoodie, and Thermoball Eco. Thanks to The North Face’s efforts, over 112,000 pounds of textile waste has been diverted from landfills around the planet. Head to the brand’s website to pick up a piece of your own for $50 and up.
